Pancake weekend

A couple of weekends ago I had to knuckle down and spend a weekend working on my thesis, to try to make me feel better on sat morning I made these 5 minute pancakes. I didn't have regular soy milk but had choc and then made Vegan Dad's easy blueberry sauce.

The pancakes were super easy, slightly sweet, and yummy although I probably wouldn't recommend using choc soy milk. The sauce was delicious and well kind of healthy too.

The next morning, I made them again with regular soy milk, and served them lemon and icing sugar. Mr T said that he had never had them with lemon and sugar before. I think it is my favourite way to eat them and you can also eat them with your hands when there is no sauce or sticky maple syrup.

I will be making this quick pancake recipe again and again and again.

5 Minute Pancakes
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup soymilk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  1. Set out all your ingredients.
  2. Set a stove element with a pan to medium heat.
  3. Combine the 4 dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt) in a bowl.
  4. Add the soy milk and vegetable oil to your mixture.
  5. Mix until smooth.
  6. Now the pan should be ready for your batter, so spoon one pancakes' worth of the mixture into the pan.
  7. Flip [carefully] when you see bubbles in the middle of the pancake, or if the edges are looking stiffened.


  1. Mmmm those pancakes look delicious. I love them with sugar and lemon, it's the traditional British way to have them but our pancake would be more like a crepe.

  2. Now I want, I mean need, pancakes! It's been too long since I've had any and that recipe looks quick n easy!
